While it is important to toilet train your dog please remember that puppies are like babies and you can’t force them to learn right away. Hitting them or rubbing their nose in poop will just confuse them and like a baby, hitting them can cause permanent damage or even death!. If you as the owner can’t handle this fact and can’t control your own temper then you probably should not have a dog.

If adding another member to your family is what you are thinking about, then you should also consider that this would mean someone else cleaning after it and having one more mouth to feed. And, this is especially true if you’re considering a pet.
Experts say that it is imperative to teach pets, especially puppies, proper hygiene and this should be done as early as possible. But they would also caution you to not expect too much and to remain realistic. Remember, much like babies, puppies are still in their formative years and should not be expected to have full or adequate control of their sphincter muscle. In fact, professionals point out that it’s not uncommon for puppies up to six months old to use the living room floor or rug as a “potty”. But they note that such problems can be put in the past as long as there is proper patience, love, and persistent training.
You need to point out and denote a spot where your puppy is allowed to go to the bathroom – and make it obvious to them that that’s the spot they should be using. Also take note of your puppy’s pattern and bring them to the spot soon after they are have finished eating, wakes up, drinks, or even play. Simply escort your puppy to the proper area and reinforce it as an acceptable bathroom spot if you catch your canine either peeing or pooping in an inappropriate spot.
What you need to keep is a system of proper scolding as well as rewarding for behaviors. Each time your dog goes to the right spot, compliment him or her verbally and rub their ears back and forth and after a few compliments, you may also want to consider scolding them when he or she disobeys. And, make sure that the “punishment” fits the “crime” and takes place immediately after the incident so that your pet can make the proper association.
The repetition of action is what experts would usually depend on. Taking that into account, they suggest planning meals at regular times and intervals, about three times a day. Teaching your pet to ration his or her food is another thing they might suggest and to do this, offer a large bowl of food and allow your dog to figure out how often the bowl will be replenished.
